@BetterSherm:  Dont let investments scare you!!  I do my own stock trading and other investing and such and it’s a lot more straight forward once you get past all their stupid jargon. There are plently of books available that break it down that could be helpful!


SO and I are avoiding buying a house.  we can afford one, we have saved enough for a down payment and continue to keep saving and everyone is telling us we are wasting our money renting (and really, we are)  but a house seems like a lot of work right now to us.  Utilites, property tax, money aside of maintainence… yeaaa seems like a lot of effort right now lol

I *just* started investing in my 401K and I’m 29 and have been at my workplace for about 5 1/2 years now. I’ve been getting lectured on how I should invest for quite a while.  I just kept telling myself “I don’t know if I’ll be there long enough for it to make sense.”  That was a big adult step I was avoiding for a long time.

Next step to avoid, buying a home/having children!  Fiance is all about moving back to where we’re from and starting a family.  My baby cut off was 30, but since I’ll be 31 by the time we get married, it is now 35.  He wants to start on the babymaking on the wedding night (already told me I should stop taking by bcp the week of the wedding). haha

I’m just kind of like “babies, house? but I’m so young!” and then I remember no, no I’m not.

This was the first year that my mom wouldn’t let me use her ($300/hr) accountant toSony tax return, so I haven’t done taxes this year :-/

I am also avoiding dressing like a grown up. I shop exclusively in the PINK boutique at Victoria’s secret, and I am an expert in yoga pants. I only wear flip flops, toms, or uggs, and if I have to “dress up” to go out, I rarely diverge from boots/flats, jeggings, and a cardigan.
